Last month, M-Files surveyed 1,500 workers to ask some hard-hitting questions about their experience with document management — everything from finding documents to versioning to mobile access. The results were published in a comprehensive report: The 2019 Intelligent Information Management Benchmark Report. We’ve compiled the most compelling figures from the report into an eye-opening infographic.

Check out these startling statistics around:

  • The most likely challenges in searching for documents
  • What workers experience in searching for the most recent version of a document
  • What employees can and can’t do with documents from their mobile device
  • How pervasive is the chaos created by scattered documents in multiple repositories

As you can see, document management challenges remain pervasive for employees the world over. We can all relate to the problem of having to recreate a document that already existed because we couldn’t find it, but it’s surprising to note that this remains an issue for over 8 of 10 people.

And is it any surprise that email is the repository of choice for documents, despite the fact that it is inherently horrible as a data repository? Look no further than this post: 1 Email Attachment = 31 Different Documents (and a Version-Control Nightmare).

It’s a mission of ours here at M-Files to change the way the world manages information and the good news is that, even though these challenges are ubiquitous, there are solutions available to help propel organizations into a more competent way of managing company information.
